A simple update today to let you know the latest. We are enjoying the snow this winter. :) The kids have been busying themselves with school, reading, and Nintendo. They are out Christmas shopping for Terrell and I as I write. Terrell and I are going to CS this Friday for a day trip to look at more houses. We also are looking for temporary housing in CS so we can get down there and get established. So far everything is VERY expensive. We have a great cooperate condo at a great rate in FC. We have only sent a few Christmas cards to family this year. Know you're loved but we are holding off on a major mailer until we get a new address. To be honest looking for housing has been completely consuming; that and school. We are doing well though. We miss all the family and friends in Cali. I know the kids sure would love good ol' play time with friends. Gabe could use a tough football game or something physical! Charley has done very well. She is a great dog. I am tired of coughing and going stir crazy myself but appreciate the little cleaning that needs to be done here. Good break!
Praise report: The bikes are covered with insurance! Terrell has been caught looking at websites checking out new bikes. I am very happy for him.
Ok... all for today.

We're moving to the Springs! After looking last weekend and visiting family, there is no turning back. We are heading south. The family is excited about finding a home and getting settled. We are prayerfully waiting and considering. I have done my homework on schools and now we are researching homes. Our favorite place is Monument. The town is very mountainous, full of trails, and close to CS and not far from Denver. But the best part of it all is the Kurtz family! We are excited about being near family and getting in lots of baby fixes with Kadence. I think I may have to go shopping for toys!
Please pray that we are patient and find the right home for our family. We'll keep you posted!!

We went to Co Springs this weekend to visit Robby, Joanna, and Kadence. It was great to see them!!! You just can't replace family. We saw the Christmas program at New Life and attended service Sunday before the shootings. My brother is the lighting director for New Life. We also took a serious look at CS area for our future. We'll keep you posted.
Below is an excerpt from my sister (in-law) about praying for the church.... Please pray during this difficult time.
Yesterday afternoon someone opened fire on people coming out of our church worship center. We are so thankful that Robby left the church about 10 minutes before this all happened. So far we know that 1 person was killed and 3 others are in the hospital. The church was on lockdown the rest of the day. The roads were blocked off and the church was surrounded by SWAT team and snipers the rest of the day, and searched thoroughly. The attacker was fatally shot by one of the volunteer security officers at the church. Thank you so much for everyone who called to make sure we are ok - we are fine, just sad and still in shock. Our church has been through so much adversity in the past year. It is full of the most loyal people who have stuck with the church family through thick and thin. Please pray for these precious people and for the families of the victims and the attacker. Also pray for our pastor, Brady Boyd, who is showing his incredible strength in leadership through this situation. He has only been the pastor here for about three months, and already has a huge job in rebuilding the church from the very public fall of its previous pastor a year ago. Just pray for strength for him and his family during this time, and that God would give him everything he needs to lead these people through this time. Pray that through this tragedy, our church would be knit together in Christ and learn to trust Him more. Thank you for your love and prayers.

Here is another video of us today at the park. Charley surprised me with how much she loves the snow. She ran and ran. You may hear me coughing in the background. So sorry! Can't get rid of it. This was definately a highlight so far. Enjoy the snow!
